Many people think that just because you have hips and a big 'ole' butt that you should avoid pencil skirts. I totally disagree with that fashion rule for the curvy. I think pencil skirts can highlight the shape of your body whether you are a size six with hips and/or butt or you are a size 18. When it comes to pencil skirts, I believe in getting the cut for your butt. I remember when I was in college and I had this male friend who would call me hips and dips because my hips and butt were the most prominent accessory on my body. You could see them coming from a mile away. Although I laughed at his joke (It was funny) it made me feel a little insecure about wearing anything fitted on the lower half of my body.
Then one day, I received a compliment from a gentle men caller (I love this phrase from The Glass Menagerie), who loved that I had 'Big Ole' hips and a booty that I decided to show them off. Ever since 2002 I've been putting them on display (See pic at top left). Now for those young ladies out there with hips and dips, I suggest that you put your lower half curves on display and check out this pencil sateen cobalt blue pencil skirt from Torrid Sizes 12-26
and for my small waist big hip ladies check out this pleated tulip skirt from Forever 21 sizes XS-XL
Just let it all hang out.
